10th Annual Right Whale Festival, All Hands on Deck!
All hands on deck! Scientists estimate only about 450 North Atlantic right whales remain, but with the tragic death of 17 right whales last year and no calves born last season, it is more important than ever to protect the remaining whales. Join us for the 10th year celebrating the right whales annual return to our coast where they come to give birth to and nurse their young, and learn more about right whales and the ongoing efforts to protect them from extinction.
